our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor
soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston is chairman and president of a company. your thoughts on what we know so far. 82 electoral votes for governor romney versus 64 for president obama. what's the mood there at romney headquarters? >> the mood is very good up here. it's very upbeat. there's a great sense of enthusiasm and energy in the room. so far so good. it's obviously going to be a close race, but i still believe that the governor is going to win with at least 300 electoral votes. i think for a sitting president to come into the election without 50% is a tough hurdle for him. the governor has run one hell of a campaign the last six weeks. so we're optimistic. i have learned a long time ago not to count chickens before they hatch but i feel strongly that we've had a good candidate, he's run a wonderful race. we've had a lot of support from a lot of people. and as i said, i'm guard ledly optimistic. i rather have opposition than the other side right now. >> what state are you focused on mostly? we have florida having closed but too close to call. pennsylvania too

"check out my saints. yes, indeed. boys in black and gold. defensive back, patrick robinson. he returns an interception, 99 yards. for a touchdown. last night against the eagles. there in the dome. >> drew brees, threw two touchdown passes. the eagles are pretty much toast. let rob save the best part. >> saints win. saints win. at this point, every win is at least, is -- a moral victory. >> all three of them. way to go. >> whatever. long way off to the playoffs. don't count them out yet. coming up next, we'll turn our attention
christie that some top advisers at the campaign's boston headquarters believe believed the governor had been offered the job. oh, i get it, so the reason chris christie was so friendly to the president last week was sour grapes? even by the standards of the romney campaign, that's low. joining me now is national political reporter for the washington post and jonathan cape hart, msnbc contributor. thanks to both of you pour being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> why are republicanes so upset over chris christie's praise for the president sp. >> chris christie was romney's number one attack dog. number one surrogate going around attacking the president in harsh terms. three, he was the keynote speaker at mitt romney's convention. i think for republicans to see governor christie not just compliment the president on how, you know, good a job he is doing in helping the people in the state of new jersey, but press conference after press conference, complimenting the president and his leadership skills, his, you know, ability to work with the president, how much he loves the guy, that is p
are predicting victory tomorrow. that's what always happens. joining us now from boston, democratic consultant here in new york democrat and fox news analyst kirsten powers. you just listened to carl rove, right? >> um. >>um did his prediction make you sad? you can tell i'm wiping away the tears from my eyes. look, i think that people are looking at the polls in completely different ways. carl is looking at sort of the public polls and things. they are weighted the wrong way. you can't really rely on these. i'm more in the other camp. i'm going on the idea that i think these polls have been pretty consistent across the board when i talk to people who know about polling, are seeing internal polls. they feel these polls are in line. and i think they point to an obama win. >> bill: you are banking your analysis, powers, on the polling? >>. no i'm banking my analysis on talking to people who are familiar with internal polling in the states that they say is pretty consistent with an obama win. >> you know what struck me, marianne as being very strange today seeing president obama go up to wisconsin
of boston reports that right now at least two polling places the turnouts in southern new hampshire is greater than they saw in 2008. so we'll watch that story throughout the day. at 7:30 eastern time some big ones. north carolina and the state of ohio closes. when the state of ohio closes what you will see is this map start to fill in. all 88 counties. some will turn red, some will turn blue and you will see it on this board in realtime. mike forealtime. progresso. in what world do potatoes, bacon and cheese add up to 100 calories? your world. ♪ [ whispers ] real bacon... creamy cheese... 100 calories...

in chicago. governor romney in boston. we'll take you there live in a moment. we are getting information on why they vote the way they are. martha maccallum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting worse. three of ten says it stays the same for them. s
amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. and new jersey transit will also start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system continues to make advances. the "m" train linking queens to manhattan just started running, but there are still no trains running below 34th street where half of manhattan remains in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways, they're now waiting in those long lines for buses. for those who drive into new york city, the lines at city bridges stretched for miles yesterday, enough to make you turn around and just stay home. it's simply not worth it. it will take all day to get in in some cases. in an effort to ease gridlock inside the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan to have at least three passengers for the rest of the week. there are checkpoints set up on the way into manhattan with cars not meeting the three-person rule, those cars turned away. and you're only beginning to make your way into new york if you're lucky enough to find gas for your cars. about 80% o
, and everybody -- not only at this network, at nbc, abc, cbs, in boston, in austin, all talking about president kerry. that was two hours before the polls closed. >> bob shrum. >> everybody knew that john kerry had won the race. everybody. let me repeat. everybody. two hours before. and then we all remembered what happened in new hampshire when everybody was dancing on hillary clinton's grave. >> oh, my god. >> the day of the new hampshire primary. >> let's look at primary crowds. >> mika and i, we're at a nashua gym and saw hillary up there speaking. >> they were, like, bringing people in from out of state. >> everybody came in from massachusetts. and i said, you know, she deserves a better ending than this. and yet, you never know until americans go into the voting booth and vote. >> well, i recall in new hampshire in february of 2008 being in the lobby of the holiday inn with you and telling you that i had just bumped into lou dellesandrou who was running hillary's campaign. >> and everybody laughed. >> everybody did laugh. that gets to the ultimate magic and mystery that is election day. th
nothing between new york city and boston. hoping to get some limit service up and running today. the hope is that that will start tomorrow. but you know, across this region, they're doing all they can to get up to speed. in the meantime you've got all of these people, thousands, trying to get on buses trying to get to work. >> tom costello, thank you for staying on top of all of that. joining me now, republican congressman chris smith. congressman, thanks so much. you have had a fema briefing. >> the latest is they are trying to do everything possible but still huge gaps that have to be overcome. i'm actually now in the mayor's office of tony fiore, the township of middletown's mayor. and the real heroes, i can't stress this without enough ex-plamati ex-plamatiex p ex-pla exclamation points the mayors and those working around the clock. 200 homes or more uninhab bitable. people are cold, they're doing everything possible to you know get power back on. and you know, we're very concerned about families with small children, as well as with those with fragile, you know, elderly who could get
, politics and public policy. good afternoon to boston you. >> hi there. >> doug i'll start with you. we pay attention to the presidential candidates. generally speaking how much of an impact can something like a fight over judges, how much of an impact can something like this happen when it comes to voter turnout? >> kit have a huge impact especially on the local level and in this case on state level. what's at stake here are a couple of things. first of all to what degree will the supreme court remain independent from either political party. in florida, in the '70s they stopped voting for supreme court justice and they were being afrointd a nominating list that the governor then would appeal to in order to appoint the justices and then they stood for retention. the coke brothers another far right-wing group here have tar get these particular justices because they want to really impose willy-nilly their will upon florida. you know, they control the legislature, they control the governor's office now they want to control the supreme -- now t will be overloaded with people who can be appointe
ed gillispie. he's in boston. how are you? >> i'm good. great to be with you tonight. >> so from what i understand, internal polling, dead even in pennsylvania, governor romney is going to go back to pittsburgh tomorrow? >> gov. romney will be in pittsburgh tomorrow and cleveland. we have momentum and we are going to capitalize on that. we are going to keep the intensity up of our voters. we've been impressed by the gaps we see in all of the polls where republican voters, romney voters much more likely to vote than president obama's voters. and pennsylvania i think is going to be a big, big win tomorrow night. a lot of people will be surprised, but i won't be because when you look at where the president is and public polls across the country, when you are the incumbent president of the united states this close to election day and you are as far below 50% as he is, you are in deep trouble. >> basically the president is at 48%. if you look at all the polls, you average them all together, that's pretty much where he is. two states you know very well is the state of ohio and the state of
's gone to the dogs. the nationwide program, with cities ranging from boston, to chicago, to l.a., provides one of a kind fitness training, allowing dogs and their owners to workout alongside each other for an hour-long stretch. this is going to be my workout partner. i should mention that quinn is almost 70 years old in human years. together, quinn and i stretched. we flexed. i'm being humbled right now. sprinted. after an arduous hour, quinn was ready for more. and quinn wasn't the only one. dog owners we talk with swear by the program. >> i'm older than the average age. and i'm able to jog a couple laps around now. >> great to be outside in the park, rather than in the gym. your dog gets you up and ready to go. >> reporter: never will find a better workout partner, right? and at the break of dawn, if it's not your speed, there's other workout programs available. take yoga, for example. that's what insiders call doggy yoga. let me tell you, this gives a new meaning to downward dog. >> the dogs can teach us a lot about yoga. dogs live in the moment. >> reporter: and dog owners

[ laughter ] these projections mean absolutely diddly if people listening at home right now do not get off their tails and go vote. you know, nate's predictions i take pretty seriously. i have for the last four years. we've been following this thing. a couple of days ago, he was at to 3. -- at 303. he's now at 314 for obama. with a 90% chance of winning. >> bill: 92% chance. >> with a little over 50% of the vote. those are all great things. but they don't mean anything. you know what happens on election day? today. if barack obama doesn't win because we didn't turn out the vote, then great.
of his top advisers that he's known in boston for more than a decade. they're taking pictures on the stairs. the plane, a sense we're going to give this one last go here on the long strange trip we've been on. interesting hope and nostalgia from the romney camp today. >> it's interesting. nostalgia. is that coupled with a positive sense? a negative sense? sometimes you would rather be looking forward, i would presume, than looking back. >> well, i think it's still a positive thing. remember, this is a guy who's been running for president of the country for the last six years. with most of the same team. all of whom will be happy to get the campaign behind them one way or another. i can tell you on the plane today was ike leavitt, running the transition projects for governor romney. so they're certainly not discounting the possibility he's going to win this thing. >> and i understand as we're looking at a picture of mitt romney and his wife ann there by his side, she was traveling around through the plane and made a stop back there with the media. >> that's right. we haven't se

[applause] and i ran for office because i am concerned about america. this election is over, but our principles and door. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to a resurging economy and renew greatness. like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field, we have given our all to this campaign. [applause] i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader. so ann and i join with you to pray for him in leading this country. you guys are the best. thank you so much. a thank you. thank you, guys. host: and as we continue to take your calls on c-span this morning we will go to henry on our line for democrats in michigan. good morning to you. caller: good morning. you know, this is a glorious morning. and i feel really sorry for the lady in florida. and that guy in new jersey who of just
goes home to boston to vote. the president's going to be there. this could be the difference in the electoral college. if you look at iowa and wisconsin, two other numbers you just threw out there. iowa and wisconsin very important part of the president's firewall in the midwest. for example, should he lose florida, iowa and wisconsin very important. same thing with ohio. both of them -- both those states important to both of these candidates. and of course wisconsin -- in wisconsin that may be one of the reasons paul ryan was chosen because the romney campaign knows how important that state could be to them as insurance, if you will, that they could get to 270. >> the president went there earlier today. >> exactly. >> a significant where they are underscores all important -- you're looking at all of these ads they're doing all the speeches, the rallies, the messages, they're putting out final arguments as they say. is there any one thing that you think could tip the balance? >> of course. turnout, voter enthusiasm, intensity. that's what all of these rallies are about. the p
drawn to their homes, to chicago, to boston, and they end up in the dark of night and manchester, new hampshire, and des moines, iowa, pleading their case. and the emotion just pours out of them. and then everything that we've said for a year or two years, the punditry, the predictions, the who's going to win ohio, the who's going to win florida goes out the window because people go to the polls, they draw the curtain, and then the only place in the world where it happens, they vote, a peaceful transition occurs or power is retained by the president, it's a magical moment we don't pay enough attention to. >> you can hear exactly what mike's talking about in both of their voices last night. mitt romney's voice was strained. he declared his candidacy on june 2nd, 2011, 17 months ago. so it's all been leading up to that. president obama was brought to tears last night, wiped a tear away thinking about his long journey, his last campaign. so mike's right, these guys have poured it all out and now we're here. >> they have been out campaigning almost as long as we're going to be on this set
